Abstract

We report external cavity second-harmonic generation of light at 544 and 272nm based on an ytterbium-doped distributed-feedback fiber laser. The nonlinear crystal used to generate light at 544nm is LiNbO3, and the maximum output of the cavity is 845mW, corresponding to a conversion efficiency of 55%. In a second frequency-doubling step, using a β-BaBa2O4 crystal, we generate up to 115mW of light at 272nm with a conversion efficiency of 14%.
